Deschenes Interviewed in Art News
Liz Deschenes was the subject of an article and interview in Art News on her mid-career survey at Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston. She was spoke about thoughts on photography, her plans for the organization of her upcoming ICA exhibit, and the political and artistic influences on her art.
“Photography has always been a hybrid. I’m really defiant about the idea that photography is this or that. Black-and-white, color—I’m not interested in that. Narrative, non-narrative—those are ways of oversimplifying the discipline, so that you can just dismiss it. If you put something in a category, then you don’t have to think about it anymore.”
